Not coins but metal bars with weight and fineness indications. As they are stamped, they will be surcharged, so unfit for metal speculation. Therefore souvenirs.

Agreed, aarkay. As my eyesight gets worse, women get more physically attractive. ;)

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I ike your philosophy, aarkay. However, forget the part about mellowing with age. I notice that I can bear paid incompetence and stupidity a lot less easy than I used to. Unless it's my granddaughter's natural naiveté, of course. :)
